We didn’t like APC, but we had to follow Umaha.
Deputy Governor Ebonyi Kelechi Igwe said it was difficult to make the decision to move to APC with Gov. Dave Umahi because he, like many other government officials, did not like the ruling party.
On Tuesday, while urging other members of the state executive to pay for a Christmas present for the governor at his Uburu country home in the Ohaozar local government area, Mr. Igwe described how they were behind the decision but had limited time to make. extensive consultations.
“When you announced that it was time to move on, many of us took time to ask for advice, but in the end they decided to move in with you,” NAN is suing Mr. Igwe for his words.
“I have to admit, some of us didn’t like APC, but they decided to join because of you, so we are stating that you should run for the presidential election in 2023.”
In response, Mr. Umahi advised his visitors to remain loyal to their administration and not indulge in any act of treason, despite the circumstances.
The governor pleaded with members of the executive branch to continue to stand firmly on his side, even though “there is a Judas every 12 people.”
He said that unstable politicians are never taken seriously. He also reiterated that APC is a party where Igbo can “value property” for themselves.
Mr. Umahi was elected twice on the platform of the opposition PDP, but left the party in November, citing “injustice perpetrated by the NDP in the southeast.”
Although he denied this, many believe that Governor Ebonyi sided with the APC in order to fulfill his presidential ambitions.
